Skywatch Friday - Golden Weekend


Weather reports say we are going to have temperatures in the 70's and 80's starting tomorrow.
This is a shot of the Golden Gate Bridge from the San Francisco side.

If you live on the San Francisco side, you will have to pay at least $5 to cross the bridge. On a beautiful weekend day, expect hundreds of visitors to make their way up to the Marin Headlands to see this million dollar view.

What a great view with the ocean and the bridge. The distance and dimension are shown through and through.

Million dollar view is right! Gorgeous captures of a soaring icon. How lucky to be a San Francisco dweller:) Hope it's an enjoyable weekend.

A view like that is easily worth $5. We are still freezing here in the midwest.

These are beautiful photos. Reminds me of a trip I took about this time last year... I have some similar photos of the bridge somewhere in my files!!

Do you only have to pay in one direction? I haven't been there, myself, but it's such a famous landmark.

eileeninmd: Thanks and I hope you have a nice weekend as well!

James: The bridge is 8,980 ft. (2,737 m) and quite a long walk when it's windy and cold.

Indrani: I agree with you and if you walk across, it is free.

Jackie/Jake: It's a good time now with the warm weather.

cocomino: The round trip walk is 3.6 miles / 5.8 km. Some people live in San Francisco have never walked it!

llandudnopictures: Lots of visitors almost every weekend, but more on nicer days.

A View From A Brown Dog: Thanks and enjoy your weekend too!

LondonLulu: I don't visit the city very often, but it's nice to see this when I do visit.

Yogi: I hope you get some warmer weather soon!

Spare Parts and Pics: I'm glad you had a chance to come out to visit here.

Rachel: Yes, you only have to pay one way, but walking is free. :)

I was on Angel Island on Saturday, amazing views from there as well, and yes it was really, really hot.
